It’s been a while since my last post, but that’s only because I was up to my ears in an office project.
It was a Show and Tell/Open House for our department.
Other teams came to look at the kind of work we do, and we had a ton of fun in store for them!
Side note: Have I ever told you about my job?
I edit books. REALLY fun books.
Books like these 🙂
We had some super fun activities planned for everyone, based around the theme of our books.
The Gardening section, had tiny (and very cute!) saplings that people could take home and grow.
More plants to encourage people to go green!
We also had a craft section in which everyone could make their own photo frames using some wonderful (and unusual!) items.
We set up a photo booth, with a vintage car cut out and some crazy props!
I like me in red hair 🙂
And then there was the food and drink section. What fun 🙂
We had a “Decorate your cupcake” stall that was very popular!
A Masterchef guess-the-ingredient-stall.
And a path breaking “Quickest-chocolate-cake-in-history-stall, manned by these two cuties!
This cake is perfect for those insane cravings that come out of nowhere.
All you need are some basic ingredients at hand, and you can have chocolate cake in 50 seconds! Yes. You heard that right.
Recipes for this marvelous cake have been doing the rounds on the internet, but after several (failed!) experiments, we discovered the perfect ingredient ratio.
This is a very basic recipe. Feel free to add some chocolate chips, dark chocolate pieces, or even liquor chocolate (yum!) in the mug! I’ve tried all these and they work really well.
The cake starts to harden a bit when it hits room temperature, so eat it warm. If you like your cake a bit gooey, then up the liquid content very slightly.

Here’s a fun picture of the people I work with. Their wonderful madness makes this a happy place to work in! 🙂
